The Pillar is a brand new style offered in the emerica footwear line. It is a true mid top for ankle support. It is a double wrapped vulcanized shoe and engineered with a breathable liner. G6 foam polyurethane insole for impact protection and rubber ollie guard on the lateral side. Includes a desert grip out-sole for durability and flexibility.
Mid top construction
Engineered liner with perforations on collar & medial
Ollie guard - rubber reinforcement for superior durability
The G6 insole is great and once you get accustomed to this type of shoes you skate very hight.
However I feel a bit uncomfortable with the high ankle collar...
Fit an feel great
Emerica knows what they are doing. I will only ride them from now on.
All around good shoe
The shoe feels great, looks great and preforms great. At first I thought they were to tight but after breaking them in it fits perfect the laces never loosen. The Ollie guard is a perfect touch for this shoe as it takes a while for it to loose its shape.
Not as good as old 'Ellington's', 'Reynold' 3', or 'Hsu's'
Really comfortable but I do prefer my old models when I was actually skating.
